A farm in Co Londonderry which makes rapeseed oil and Co Armagh's famous Tayto Castle have been listed among Northern Ireland's top food destinations.

Tourism NI has come up with the 10 must-see and must-do tours for foodies in Northern Ireland.

Top of the list was Taste & Tour NI - the firm behind the Meet The Brewer Tour, Belfast Bar Tour and Belfast Whiskey Walk.

The company's Belfast Food Tour was recently awarded a five-star visitor attraction rating.

And the yellow fields of Limavady were featured at number four on the list.

As part of the working museum attraction at Broglasco Farm - the home of Broighter Gold Rapeseed Oil - visitors are welcomed into the pressing room.

At number six was Mourne Foods and Films Cycle Tour. It sees visitors take to two wheels to venture around artisan food producers in the area, as well as cycling through locations used in the production of movie and TV productions such as Philomena, Game Of Thrones, The Fall, and Dracula Untold.

In Co Fermanagh and ranked seventh, The Lough Erne Food Trail sees visitors experience the lakelands by both water and land.

And in Co Armagh, a tour around Northern Ireland's favourite crisp manufacturer's factory was in at number 10. Visitors to Tayto Castle can see first-hand how the famous crisps are made and even get to meet Mr Tayto, the brand mascot.

Rachel Quigg of Tourism Northern Ireland said: "The penultimate month is 'Legacy and Learn to' in the Northern Ireland Year of Food and Drink and we encourage everybody to stay somewhere beautiful, learn something new and eat something amazing."
